The Buster ICU Pet Oxygen Cage is a safe and easy way to administer oxygen therapy to your pet! This veterinary-grade Oxygen Cage utilizes a Venturi system that allows the user to set the oxygen level in the cage. This system also disperses carbon dioxide, heat, and humidity to ensure that your pet is safe and comfortable.

Note: Small and Medium Cages can be used with a 5 Liter continuous flow Oxygen Concentrator such as the Pawprint Oxygen Pro 5.

Large Cages require higher flow rates to achieve safe levels of oxygen saturation and should be used with a 10 Liter continuous flow Oxygen Concentrator like the Drive Medical 1025DS.

Pet Oxygen Cage Sizing:

  • Small: 18” x 13” x 13” For pets under 5lbs
  • Medium: 24” x 18’ x 18” For pets under 25lbs
  • Large: 44’ x 26’ x 26” For pets under 70lbs

Pet Oxygen Cage Specifications:

  • Solid metal frame for durability
  • 360 degree clear panels for visibility and pet comfort
  • Includes oxygen tubing, Venturi set, ice packs, and carry case
  • Easy to set up and stow away!
SKU: 6008 Category: GTIN: 00868451000495
What size should I get?

We recommend measuring your pet and comparing their measurements to the dimensions of each Cage size. Your pet should be able to fit comfortably in the Cage both when standing up and when laying down. When in doubt, size up!

Cage dimensions:

  • Small: 18" x 13" x 13"
  • Medium: 24" x 18" x 18"
  • Large: 44" x 26" x 26"

Small and Medium Cages can be supplied by a 5 Liter Oxygen Concentrator. A Large Cage requires the use of a 10 Liter Oxygen Concentrator.

How do I set the oxygen level inside the Cage?

The Buster ICU Oxygen Cage comes with multi-colored fittings that allow you to select the oxygen level that is recommended by your veterinarian. These fittings are called the Venturi System, and they set the level of oxygen by mixing room air with the oxygen supply from the Oxygen Concentrator. This also has the important benefit of adding more airflow to the system, which is critical to displacing the toxic carbon dioxide that your pet is exhaling in the oxygen cage. 

The available oxygen settings are: 25%, 28%, 35%, 40%, 60%, and 100%. The most commonly used setting is the 40% Venturi, but you should ask your veterinarian about the best oxygen level for your pet.

I found a cheaper Oxygen Cage on Amazon, will it work?

Be careful! Many "oxygen cages" on Amazon are simply rebranded pet crates that don't have the appropriate features to maintain a safe environment for your pet.

It’s important that your oxygen cage allows you to set the oxygen level depending on your pet's needs. If the oxygen level in the cage is too high, your pet can experience oxygen toxicity, which can result in injury or death. If the oxygen level is too low, your pet might not be getting the therapy they need. The Buster ICU Oxygen Cage uses the Venturi System to set the oxygen level in the cage based on your vet's recommendations.

Another critical part of your oxygen cage setup is the displacement of carbon dioxide. Your pet is exhaling carbon dioxide with each breath, and without proper airflow and ventilation, carbon dioxide can build up and become unsafe for your pet. The Buster ICU Oxygen Cage uses the Venturi System to multiply the airflow through the Cage, which flushes out excess carbon dioxide.

It's also important to consider ventilation and build quality. If you have questions about your oxygen cage setup, give us a call at (855) 699-4366, we're happy to help!

What oxygen supply do I need for the Buster ICU Oxygen Cage?

In order to achieve safe levels of oxygen, carbon dioxide, heat, and humidity inside the Buster ICU Oxygen Cage, you need to supply it with a continuous flow, medical-grade Oxygen Concentrator. Your Oxygen Concentrator needs to be able to produce >90% oxygen at flow rates from 5 to 10 liters per minute.

The Small and Medium Buster ICU Cages require a flow rate of at least 5 liters per minute. The Large Buster ICU Cage requires a flow rate of 10 liters per minute.

    Wonderful product, great quality and well worth the money. Thank you pawprint team

    If your cat has an asthma attack, one trip to an emergency vet hospital will cost you $1,500-$2,500 dollars. I have cared for cats for over 30 years. The Buster Oxygen Cage is as necessary as any medication your cat needs. If your cat lowers its head and coughs on a regular basis, (without discharge) it has asthma, and you need an oxygen cage in case of an emergency. Prevent an asthma attack before it happens. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

    It is very simple, if your pet has an asthma attack they need two things to live. A shot of steroids to open their lungs (ask your vet how to do this), and first and foremost they need oxygen immediately or they will die. How do I know, because I almost lost my little girl Olive to asthma attacks on three separate occasions. The emergency vet charged me $50 hr to put her into an oxygen cage. They recommend 24 hrs of oxygen therapy, that’s right $1,200 just for the oxygen. Lesson learned. I bought the Buster Oxygen Cage. Why did I buy the Buster Oxygen Cage? Because it’s a quality product, and mostly because they answer their phone and guide you through the process.

    Nothing is better than an actual person answering your call when you need help. The people at Pawprint Oxygen were absolutely wonderful. Having this oxygen cage gives me peace of mind knowing that I have what I need to save my little girl’s life in an emergency.

    I strongly urge any pet owner, dog or cat, with either asthma or heart issues to give oxygen therapy to your pets, it is priceless in extending their lives, treating their ailment and in minimizing the risk of an attack.

    My name is Ted Petersen, and I have never left a review for any product before. I felt this was a must due to the importance of the issue, the quality of the Buster Cage, and again the help you receive from the people at Pawprint Oxygen.

    Thank you guys for all the help.

Do I need a prescription for this product?

Yes, we require a prescription for any oxygen source, which includes Pawprint Oxygen Canisters, Oxygen Kits, and Oxygen Concentrators.

Just enter your veterinarian's information during checkout and we'll contact them and get the prescription. If you already have a prescription you can upload it during checkout.

Orders ship out as soon as we receive and validate your prescription, typically 24-48 hours after your place your order.

How long will a canister of Pawprint Oxygen last?

The duration of each Canister depends on the Regulator:

  • 0.5 LPM Regulator - each Canister will last 20 minutes
  • 1.0 LPM Regulator - each Canister will last 10 minutes
  • 2.0 LPM Regulator - each Canister will last 5 minutes
Do I have to use the entire Oxygen Canister at once?

No, you can stop the flow of oxygen at any time by twisting the Regulator counter-clockwise and removing it from the Oxygen Canister. You can then use the remainder of the oxygen at a later date.

How do I place the Pet Oxygen Mask on my pet?

Hold the mask 6 inches from your pet’s face and start the flow of oxygen. Slowly place the mask over your pet’s nose, giving them time to acclimate to the oxygen flow and the presence of the mask. If your pet resists, remove the rubber diaphragm on the end of the mask and try again. Most pets accept the mask once they feel the effects of the oxygen. 

Can Pawprint Oxygen Canisters be refilled?

Our Oxygen Canisters cannot be refilled. You may start and stop oxygen flow as many times as you would like. Once the Oxygen Canister is empty, it should be recycled in a standard blue recycling bin or according to your local guidelines.

For small dogs
Depth = 3,” Diameter = 3.5”

Large

For medium & large dogs
Depth = 2,” Diameter = 3.5”
Measure the length and width of your pet’s snout when determining the correct Pet Oxygen Mask size. You want the mask to loosely fit around their snout.

What size should I get?

We recommend using the measurements below and measuring your pet to determine the correct size. It’s important to give your pet some room to move around, so when in doubt, size up. Our weight recommendations are general guidelines — you should always measure your pet to get the right size.

  • Small: 18” x 13” x 13” For pets under 5lbs
  • Medium: 24” x 18’ x 18” For pets under 25lbs
  • Large: 44’ x 26’ x 26” For pets under 70lbs

It’s also important to consider your oxygen source. The small and medium Cages can be supplied by a 5 liter continuous flow oxygen concentrator like the Pawprint Pro 5. The large Cage requires a 10 liter continuous flow oxygen concentrator like the Drive Medical 1025DS. For large pets, consider using a Pet Oxygen Mask if they don’t fit in an Oxygen Cage.

Selecting the Regulator flow rate

The flow rate is the rate at which the oxygen flows out of the Canister. You can think of it as the “dosage” of oxygen your pet is receiving.

The flow rate is determined by considering your pet’s weight. The flow rate on the Regulator is pre-set to the flow rate given in liters per minute (LPM) and cannot be changed. We will check with your veterinarian that the flow rate you have selected is appropriate before shipping your order.

Please use the chart below to determine the most appropriate flow rate for your pet:
.desc-table { width:100%; border:1px solid #5E5E5E; border-collapse:collapse; padding:10px; box-shadow: 0px 4px 10px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.1); } .desc-table th:first-child { width: 40%; } .desc-table th { color: #2B475E; border:1px solid #5E5E5E; padding:20px; background:#FFFFFF; text-align: left; font-family: Poppins; font-style: normal; font-weight: 600; font-size: 20px; line-height: 150%; } .desc-table td { border:1px solid #5E5E5E; text-align:left; padding: 10px 20px; background:#FFFFFF; } .desc-table td span:first-child { font-family: Lato; font-style: normal; font-weight: bold; font-size: 20px; line-height: 180%; color: #2B475E; margin-right: 10px; } .desc-table td span { font-family: Lato; font-size: 18px; color: #5E5E5E; }
Pet weight Flow rate
00-11 lbs0-22 kgs 0.5 LPM
12-22 lbs 6-10 kgs 1.0 LPM
23-33 lbs 11-15 kgs 2.0 LPM
For veterinarians: flow rate guidelines are given at a dosage of 100mL/kg/min with the Pet Oxygen Mask with the black rubber diagraphm removed being the recommended method of administration.
If your pet weighs more than 33 lbs, consider an Oxygen Concentrator (linked) for home use in order to achieve a more appropriate oxygen flow rate.
